Scouting Report - June 17, 2002: (Spencer Cagle * VTInsider.com )
Adibi told The Insiders that "Maryland, Virginia Tech, N.C. State, Tennessee, Georgia, Pitt, Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Notre Dame" are the schools that are recruiting him. He has just three offers at this point, however, as Tech, Maryland and Tennessee have officially offered. Adibi has visited Virginia Tech and Maryland in the past.
When asked about his favorites, Adibi noted that he has no favorite and is still checking out his options. "I don't really have [favorites] at this point," he said.
When asked about Maryland, the other school he has visited, the 6-3 defensive end said he went down for Junior Day when Maryland played Duke last season. "It was a crazy atmosphere," he noted. "I've never been around an atmosphere like that before. I also talked to the coaches and stuff and got a really good impression that [Coach Friedgen] is a good coach and wants me there."
Adibi attended the N.C. State one day camp on Monday and plans to hit the weights hard this summer. Adibi, who calls his pass rush the most effective part of his game, said that he goes "100% every play," making him hard to stop. He noted that he still has some improving to do, however. "This summer, I want to hit the weight room hard and improve strength and physical ability," Adibi said.
Last season, Adibi had over 100 tackles, 19 sacks, and an interception for Phoebus in Hamption, Virginia. With a 4.5 forty time, a 355 pound bench, and a 535 pound squat, this beast looks to pad his stats even more in 2002.
